I think as long as Liz can stay out grappling situations then she will be able to stop Ronda with her striking

I think i is pretty clear that Rhonda hates getting hit, she would go all Brock Lesner against a good striker. Im just gonna watch this and hope Liz at least can make it out of the first round.

The probability of Rowdy winning is pretty good. I'm going against the grain, hoping that army training and determination can get Liz the victory via TKO in the later rounds.

Ronda is already acting like she won and she needs a big humbling loss to learn to respect her opponents. Everyone keeps hyping her like she's the greatest fighter on the planet and how 'good' looking she is (barely a 6/7 in my books).

I hope Liz wins just from watching Primetime and seeing how completely different their two lives are. Knock the poster child off her perch Liz!

Kinda reminds me of WWE in the 90's with Alundra Blayze. Having a women's division built around 1 competitor.

Kinda reminds me a bit of Rocky I. Flashy champ gives marginal pro a chance at the title. Not to demean Carmouche, but she spends as much time running a gym and teaching classes as she does training. Rousey is a full-time professional fighter.

The sad thing is people are saying how Liz could win if she can stay off the ground. And how she can exploit Ronda's striking.

Ronda at this point is probably a better striker. As novice as Rousey is her striking is still probably better than Liz's. She works with much better coaches and fighters.

Liz is basically a part time fighter who got a crazy shot at a UFC main event and this is the first time she is training full time.

I'm not interested in this fight at all. Women's MMA is like women's soccer, far from man's level. But... I'll give them the chance to prove me wrong. If Rousey loses, WUFC is going to be weakned. They need her to win, in order to have a good marketing. We'll see...

I'm going to be honest. I want Liz to win mainly because of all the hype that is surrounding Linda Rousey. I'd like to see it get taken down a notch.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
